The United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) has issued a report on the effects of automatic re-enrollment in health/dental insurance coverage obtained through the health benefits exchanges created under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). GAO found that automatic re-enrollment often placed people in insurance plans that cost more than if the individual had shopped on their own again through the PPACA health benefits exchange.
